NOTE: All of this information is to the best of my recollection.
The second location was at my company, Aspect Development (later i2 Technologies), on Shoreline and Charleston in Mountain View. Aspect was a heavy user of Python and JPython (later renamed to Jython). They had ported their Explore client from C++ to Jython and even invested in Python development back in around 2000. I found out about BayPiggies because I took your Python class at USCS extension.
The BayPiggies meeting was at Aspect/i2 for around a year I believe until they laid off most of the employees. I remember Guido showing up for at least three of the meetings we had there.

The meeting, however, didn't happen due to an email mishap (https://mail.python.org/pipermail/tutor/1999-July/000344.html <https://mail.python.org/pipermail/tutor/1999-July/000344.html>).

I was there when Guido was the speaker at the CoffeeNet in SF where it was SRO with ppl peeking in from outside trying to hear/get in.
